Hi All, We use Betterwmf to make wmfs of our drawing that are then inserted into our Word Product Manuals. Lately we have had the need to have these manuals tranlsated to different languages by 3rd party translators. The problem is that they can't obviously click the text in the drawings, as they are just flat images. Does anyone have any experience with translations. Do you send the AutoCAD files and then re-insert them all later or how do you manage it? Thanks very much:)
I am in the process of developing a Word template to consolidate the design calculations into one document. The design software we use creates dxf files. I am trying to open specific drawings, as determined by the user, and convert them to wmf so they can be imported into the word template. The following code is what I have for the export. I have added comments in blue to explain my concerns. Note that the following code is only for exporting the drawing and is being run from word. Sub Convert_3DBuild() Dim iRow As Integer Dim AcadApp As Object Dim SS 'As AcadSelectionSet Word does not let me declare this variable which is why it is commented out. On Error Resume Next Set AcadApp = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application") If Err.Number 0 Then Set AcadApp = CreateObject("AutoCAD.Application") End If AcadApp.Visible = True AcadApp.Documents.Open ("C:\drawing.dxf") Set SS = AcadApp.ActiveDocument.SelectionSets.Add("SS") Set SS = Nothing 'AutoCAD help states that if the selection set is Nothing, the entire drawing will be selected, but it does not seem to be the case here. 'SS.AcadApp.SelectAll AcadApp.ActiveDocument.Export "C:\drawing", "WMF", SS ' because SS is not recognized by AutoCAD as a selection set, AutoCAD waits for the user to select the parts before continuing. ' The selection needs to be automatic AcadApp.ActiveDocument.Close savechanges:=False ' If AcadApp.Documents.Count = 1 Then ' AcadApp.ActiveDocument.sendcommand "Exit" & vbCr ' is there a way to exit AutoCAD with out using SendCommand which again requires user interaction to select not to save changes to a blank drawing? ' End If Set AcadApp = Nothing End Sub I am open to other methods to accomplish the same task. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
sparklerach posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi All, We used Furix BetterWMF 2013 to copy our drawings from AutoCAD 2013 to Word 2007. Never had a problem till we upgraded to 2013 for both products. Now when we paste the drawing into Word (for our product manuals) any Ohm symbols turn into Question marks. I'm assuming the problem is not AutoCAD, as it displays correcty there. Just wondering if anyone else uses this product or has any probems with Ohm symbols in general in AUtoCAD 2013. Thanks
